Advocate for United Way of Lewis County!

Raise your voice and advocate for your neighbors-in-need.  Join thousands of advocates using their voices to create positive change.

Throughout our history, United Way has done extraordinary work to improve people's lives and build strong communities. With our focus on breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty, United Way has a key role to pay in adovacting for good public policy. Without community imput, our priorities in Education, Income/Financial Stability and Health will lose critical government policy and funding support.

Join us and advocate for an Education, Income/Financial Stability, Health or nonprofit strengthening issue that you are passionate about. Your community needs you to have an impact on public policy decisions. Advocating in your community does not simply mean lobbying on a specific piece of legislation.

Speak Out - Contact your representative in Congress about an Education, Income/Financial Stability, or Health issue.

Be informed - Learn how your community ranks in academic attainment, income stability and health.

Engage with your community - Host a community conversation with your friends, co-workers or neighbors. Learn what people say are their aspirations for your community and talk about how you can work together to address challenges.

 

Champion the Cause.

By working together, living in harmony, helping and supporting one another we aim to create collective impact and build a thriving community.
